3 Movements From Lincolnshire Posy Composed by Percy Grainger. Arranged by Robert Longfield. For String Orchestra. Published by Ludwig Masters Publications. (50250068)

Percy Grainger is so wonderfully quirky and these musical wildflowers are a perfect example. Lisbon (Sailor's Song) is in 6/8 "with plenty of lit" plus activity in all parts, accidentals liberally sprinkled throughout and some "2 against 3." Horkstow Grange (The Miser and his Man: a local tragedy) is done slowly and "singingly" using alternating 4/4, 5/4 and 3/2 measures, with rhythmic unisons in the accompanying parts and a beautiful melody floated over top.  The Lost Lady Found (Dance Song) is "Fast, but sturdily" conducted in "1" with offbeat accents and jaunty syncopation.  Everyone but basses gets a turn at the melody while they "louden lots bit by bit" until they finish up "hammeringly" with a ffff.  This string orchestra setting is the first appearance in any medium other than concert band.  Grainger based it on folksongs he collected, intending each as a musical portrait of the individual singers who introduced the tunes to him.
